well, we have seen the demise of the british car industry, now the US companies go down the drain...good riddance to them, they deserve it and yes there might indeed be a link to the absence of the use of proper units...

well, how can they be expected to build vehicles with proper fit and precision when using such imprecise units? it's not their fault! maybe if GM were to secretly switch to metric..

I dont have a car right now (just sold it). But I've only owned one so far so I'll go with that one.
1991 Audi 90 Quattro 20v - 2,3 20v inline 5 170 hp. It did about 20L per 100 km(1L per 5km) when I drove pretty quick. When easy on the throttle about 14L per 100 km (1L per 7km).

Subaru Legacy (2.5 Turbo, AWD, Automatic)

City: 19 mpg or 12.4 l/100km
Mostly highway: 23 mpg or 10.2 l/100km

Could probably get better, it's just very hard to drive this car conservatively.

That was because maintainance was a little bit too much with my driving. And the engine had it's best time too. But it was fun.

This would also stop all accidents, because as we all know - speed kills. (It is nothing to do with bad driving, according to the government)

Unsurprising - she's Welsh

Scary - She's an MP

As for mpg, my father's Passat TDI will comfortably get over 50mpg (60mpg US, 5.6l/100km) at a cruise when you want it too, which is nice.

there is a slight error in your calculation, 5.6 l/100 km equals 42 mpg US. and 50 imperial......maybe you should go metric after this,,,,
